Morningside Nannies was far more professional and focused than the other agencies. They listened to my request and responded promptly. I feel very fortunate to have such superb childcare and appreciate the luxury of returning to work with-out worry.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
I liked the fact that you screened the candidates before sending them to us, rather than sending the candidate to me before I knew anything about them, like happened with (name withheld), your competition.
I described the person I wanted and that’s what you found for me. Thank you.
The quality of candidates was very good. It was a difficult decision but Amy has proven to be a wonderful choice. We could not have found a better person. I would recommend your services to anyone looking for a nanny.
I trust Morningside Nannies & their research into their nannies more than any of the other seven agencies we talked with. The checks are reliable and the quality of nannies was superb. The process of finding a nanny was handled quite professionally.
We’ve placed ads in newspapers on two occasions and have gone through an Au Pair program twice. This has been our best experience by far!
I had an emergency situation and had a nanny sent over for the following day. I am so pleased with the service provided by Morningside Nannies. My son immediately fell in love with the nanny assigned to us. We couldn’t be happier.
Originally, I tried to find a nanny on my own and it took me much, much longer and only half of them spoke English. I had to do my own background checks. Morningside Nannies made it much easier, faster and more efficient.
The first person you recommended met my needs perfectly.
The International Nanny Association, a non-profit educational association, has developed the INA Nanny Basic Skills Exam and the INA Nanny Credential Exam that nannies can take directly through the association.
The INA Nanny Basic Skills Exam tests a nanny’s basic childcare knowledge. No studying is required for this exam and the exam is taken online.
The INA Nanny Credential Exam tests a nanny’s practical childcare knowledge. To sit for the exam it is recommended that a nanny have at least 2,000 hours of childcare experience and review the study guide Beyond Parenting Basics, The International Nanny Association’s Official Guide to In-Home Childcare. Exam takers must also have current CPR and first aid certification.
The exam is taken online but test takers must secure a proctor to administer the exam. Those who pass the exam earn the title of INA Credentialed Nanny.
Both exams and the nanny credential exam study guide are available in both English and Spanish. Nannies must score at least a 70% for a passing score.
